The monotonous life

Has the light and the darkness,

The joy and the pain,

Or is it,

The pain and relief of pain?

Is this nothing but a life of

Pushing through suffering,


To at once be relieved of it all?

Is life nothing but living in darkness,

Only to temporarily see the light?

Should we accept these intervals,

And integrate them into ourselves,

To let them define us?

Or are we searching for

That baseline of happiness,

A life of joy with periods of


To again fill the void of which we are


-In honor of a true friend-
